How to Start Running

The New York Times—August 23, 2016

The New York Times editor Tara Parker-Pope provides running advice for new and beginner runners, including how to train, pick your gear, fuel your body, hydrate, lose weight, prevent injury, and run well.

Jordan D. Metzl, MD, a primary care sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, provides tips on how to stay hydrated: "The length of your workout should be the guide for what you drink." The article also says that, "If you run for less than an hour, water is just fine. After running for an hour, your body begins to need those nutrients, so a few sips of a sports drink can help you maintain your energy levels. But as with all things, a little bit of a sports drink can go a long way."
